Veeam Backup for Office 365 – Upgrade to V4

This post was originally published on this site


With the release of Veeam Backup for Office 365 in the backend of 2019, Veeam has moved the game on in terms of product functionality.

Many of Veeams competitors have operated in this way for quite some time, but they are typically SaaS based and do not offer the flexibility and control in terms of backup and restore that Veeam offers for Office 365.

I have been running V3 in house for quite some time and to be honest, not really had to touch it, “It Just Works” as Veeam would say. But now was the time to take a look at upgrading the product and checking out some of that object storage integration.
